Facebook is looking to fill 100 full-time positions at its data center in New Albany near Columbus.

The social media giant announced in August that it would develop a $750 million data center in New Albany, which is just northeast of Columbus. Positions include, but are not limited to: project managers, program engineers, and health and safety coordinators.

“By investing hundreds of millions of dollars into the New Albany Data Center, Facebook will also support thousands of construction jobs for area locals. Sourcing labor and materials locally are other ways Facebook is looking further contribute to the community for the long-term,” Facebook officials said in a statement this week.

Additional information on the open positions can be found here.

Facebook’s 22-acre data center is expected to begin services in 2019. The announcement is a big win for Ohio. Kasich said the state is diversifying its economy, veering away from solely investing in the manufacturing industry. “Ohio has it all,” Kasich told The Associated Press. “You’ve got the cool factor. You’ve got exciting companies. You’ve got the lower cost of living.”
